If you react, because you don’t like BLM (that’s ok) and say “All Lives Matter” it is inherently racist.
I think this magazine puts it best: (fucking magazine for evidence wtf is life)
“Soon after the inception of the BLM movement, it was itself thwarted by baffling accusations of racism, often accompanied with the rejoinder: “All Lives Matter.”
Clearly, as a descriptive statement, this isn’t true. Not all lives matter. (Consider the way Black people, other people of colour, refugees, Gypsies and Travellers, and homeless people are treated.) We could instead interpret it as normative statement: all lives should matter. Agreed. Yet context is very important. Note that nobody was saying “All Lives Matter” before 2013. Rather, it’s a direct response to BLM, and has no life outside that. And that’s a problem, because if BLM is understood as a commitment to urgently tackling the violence and brutality of anti-Black racism, then blurting that “All Lives Matter” is at best, tangential, and at worst, a malevolent distraction.
Its effect is to stall conversations about anti-Black racism and instead either pretend that all lives do matter, or talk about everybody’s lives all at once, whether or not particular groups are subject to particular, potentially fatal injustices right now. This leaves no bandwidth to address the particularly brutal injustices that Black people face. Saying “All Lives Matter” violates the concept of triage in medical ethics, which demands that we address the most troubling or life-endangering issues first.
“All Lives Matter” is therefore an obstacle to tackling anti-Black racism. Sometimes, it’s a result of ignorance, a misinterpretation of BLM. More often, it’s intentional; a filibuster, bent on derailing anti-racist work.”
Destiny I think puts a lot of racial injustices into perspective. You might not agree with him but at least maybe check out a video of his
Can’t lie, I was ALM before shit like this was brought up
